get back. give him air. brian. brian, what's wrong? get an ambulance. cardiac insuffiency? what's that mean? simply, it means your heart isn't getting all the blood it needs. what do you do about it? depends on what causes it. treatment ranges from doing nothing to bypass surgery. bypass. like they did with arthur ashe? yeah. but not for you. if you follow my instructions, you'll have a normal life. you scared me. pro scouts been watching me. i'm first pick in the pro draft. not any more you're not.
9:03 pm
but you said-- you'll lead a normal life, but not as a basketball player. you heard from a friend? but that isn't possible. mr. maxwell quit a few hours ago. perhaps he told my friend he was thinking about quitting. oh. well, this is mostly janitorial work-- cleaning, working the furnace. repairing windows. there's a lot of that. why's that? two things i am fiercely opposed to-- ignorance and drugs. they go together. mrs. toma started this school to help those whom the others schools never bothered to teach. there are a lot of them.
9:04 pm
i tell my pupils, no drugs. i need all of your brain. this steps on the toes of the pushers. so they break your windows. yeah. but my pupils do not do drugs. it's a small price. did your friend mention this job is only for one person? good. jonathan is-- working next door, but mark here is a magician with windows. ok. mrs. toma makes hiring decisions, but i'm sure there won't be any problem. i'm sure there won't be. we don't quit because we lost brian. put your arms up on defense. either play ball or go on home! all right? all right, let's do it again. i want to see some sweat!
9:05 pm
stay out on him. wing it over there. now, bring it out. quick, across this way. now back. hello, brian. ok, bring it out. yeah. can we talk? i'm busy right now. take it around. now move your feet. no, the man hits that jumper 60%. you were never busy when i played. all right. take five. what is it, brian? i've been trying to call you. like i said, i've been busy. i thought we were close. i need to talk. brian, look, uh... i am sorry about what happened to you. the team was set around you.
9:06 pm
now it's like starting from scratch. that's all you care about? brian, i'm a coach. wins and losses, they mean my job. you're on a full scholarship and can't play. that's one less man i can recruit. you're right. that's what i care about. i apologize for not dying to get your scholarship back. all right. let's go! who's there?
9:07 pm
oh, brian. hi, mama. what you doing home so early? brian, what's wrong? what's wrong, son? i lost my scholarship. what? i lost it. they can't take away your scholarship because you can't play basketball. they can't get away with that. we're going to straighten this thing out. mama... they didn't take it away.
9:08 pm
i quit. why? because i can't pass. i would have lost it anyway. what do you mean, you can't pass? you got a "b" average. somebody else took the test. what? mama, i got an "a" in french. you ever hear me talking french? i never been to class. how long has this been going on? ever since i started school. today they said they won't do it anymore. there's no way i'll pass.
9:09 pm
now you don't know that. mama... i can't read. that's a lie. it's true. oh, dear god in heaven. ever since you was born, i said to myself, this boy is going to have an education. he's going to--

9:27 pm
could they be private? you know, like, no kids around? i could do that. but i won't. for you to learn alongside everybody else is an important first step. it takes lots of courage. the other students already know this. they'll know you know it, too. but... to show you i'm a friend, i'll bend the rule. your first lesson will be private. you mean, now? right now. you're going to learn to read. later, you can take me out for dinner. yes, ma'am. brian, how you doing? just great, man! tell your friend thanks.

[dramatic music] ♪ male narrator: when the factories first began to send their pall of smoke over the cities and farmlands in the east offered only the barest living, americans turned their faces toward the west. they poured into the new territories by thousands, bringing their household goods, fording the mighty rivers and climbing the mountains, fighting indians and outlaws, praying, toiling, dying. it was a hard land, a hostile land. only the strong survived: a new american breed, the pioneer. in this forge, upon this anvil, was hammered out a man who became a legend,
10:00 pm
a man who hated thievery and oppression. his face masked, his true name unknown, he thundered across the west upon a silver-white stallion, appearing out of nowhere to strike down injustice or outlawry and then vanishing as mysteriously as he came. his sign was a silver bullet. his name was...

like the fellow says, sometimes polishing your britches gets you further than blistering your feet. pretty good, eh? - i'm here because i felt the ranger was the only man i could trust to give me a fair, impartial report on what's causing the trouble out here. - looks like you had friends aplenty when you come to the kilgore ranch. - how's a politician to know who's telling him the truth? it may well be that kilgore's solution is the only one possible. move red hawk and his people away from any contact with the ranchers, settle them on another reservation. - just means breaking another promise to them indians. that ought to come easy by now. - i have a feeling there's more to this situation than just friction between white and indian. - might be. but, governor, this is a rich territory. rich for white men, rich for indian. sometimes a fellow forgets the goodies he has in his own pockets and does a little snooping into another feller's.

could be some of that going on. - whatever it is, i cannot come before the congress and plead for statehood until it's cleared up. tell that to the ranger. - yep, i'll tell him. - i must be able to show the congress a territory at peace with itself, ready to join the union. this territory isn't ready now. - governor, you're as right as rain. well, adios-y.
